I don't think it's Babs fault as much as it is Hollands. As a coach you want to make the best decisions working with what you have, so why the same roster that OBVIOUSLY isn't working? Does it take 7 games to realize that the lineups suck? Unfortunately I fear Babs would be the scapegoat and be the first to go in the event it comes to a house cleaning.
Cleary played 14 minutes tonight, including being on the ice at any point in the last 10 minutes... that 14 doesn't include the 4 minutes he put us short handed for his stellar D on that high stick haha... Babcock is at fault, we have been terrible and as much as it sucks... when you lose your number 2 center you need to break up the twins and not make helm play a role thats over his head. We have 0 center depth because he refuses to break them up even when its the most obvious thing ever
You people are pathetic excuse for fans. I'm ready for a struggling Red Wings season, it's about time to burn off all this dead wood.
Hey I never quit on this team, but Im quitting on this team and not wasting hundreds of dollars to go up to detroit to see them ice not our best team and put out an effort like this at home after a two day rest. I don't think this team has no chance, but we need to get rid of the dead weight, which I honestly don't see us doing. 0-7 lol.. that is awful!
I love the reactions... DETROIT IS HORRIBLE!!!! ... down 1 goal mid 2nd haha Yes we are boasting a very lack luster offense missing our number 2 dman and 2 top 6 forwards... but "It's been the theme all season" nothing to do with injuries or a good TB team lol...
I don't know who you guys want to use on our 2nd unit and 2nd line? He cant create a number 2 PP line with 3rd liners?
Like many have said.. Game 6 favors us... When your the away team you only need to steal one away game and take care of business at home. Well The Hawks probably came out with their biggest jump and that usually slows up as the elimination games continue on. Detroit should and better come out on Monday with a fire under their ass and I think we will win game 6.
If..... it goes 7 we have played really well when facing elimination and I'm hoping that continues to be a great trend.
